08 Sep The National Institutes of Health (NIH) aims to speed up COVID-19 research
We all want to find ways to prevent and treat COVID-19. One way to help is by taking part in clinical trials. A new effort at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gives people the chance to do just that. The COVID-19 Prevention Network (CoVPN) connects volunteers with clinical trials. NIH wants to make sure that treatments and vaccines work for everyone. So it’s important for clinical trials to include people from different backgrounds. CoVPN’s goal is to speed up research on COVID-19 treatments and vaccines.
All of Us and CoVPN are separate programs. We’re sharing information about CoVPN because we are committed to making sure that people from all backgrounds are included in health research. To learn more about CoVPN or register to volunteer, visit https://www.coronaviruspreventionnetwork.org/.
